Canadian Traveller magazine has recognized three members of the Indigenous Tourism Association of Canada (ITAC) team for their prestigious list of Top 40 Under 40, a clear indication of the ongoing growth of Indigenous tourism across the country.

ITAC members recognized in the list of 40 include: Dené Sinclair, Director of Marketing for ITAC; Dave Laveau, Executive Director, Quebec Aboriginal Tourism and ITAC Board Member; and Kylik Kisoun Taylor, Owner/Operator, Tundra North Tours and ITAC Board Member. Also recognized are Stephanie Clovechok, Vice President & Director of Destination Innovation at Tourism Saskatoon; and Cedar Bradley-Swan, CEO, Adventure Canada, both who are strong and supportive partners of ITAC.

“This award recognition demonstrates strongly that the Indigenous tourism industry is playing a large part in the current and future growth of tourism in our country,” says Keith Henry, President & CEO of ITAC. “We are incredibly proud of each of our members. I am personally very pleased to see our Director of Marketing, Dené Sinclair from Peguis First Nation in Manitoba recognized for her passionate commitment to our growth as an organization and advocate for her community.”

The Top 40 will be featured in a very special edition of Canadian Traveller, scheduled to be published in August.
